in net than there have actually been created because he wants us to feel better about the economy than the data would actually warrant. governor romney wants to feature everything that's negative, without acknowledging anything that's positive aut the economy. d if people feare one of those indictments without picking up the other compensatory body of information, they don't have the whole picture. the reality is the economic indicators right now are mixed. and you have a new obama ad on the air that's trying to feature the ones that are positive in order to increase the likelihood that you think about those as you ask whether or not the country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argunt that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but they're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's exploiting it every inch of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan

and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are reasons for it, which are very significant in and of themselves. i would like to return to that in a momen
of the first presidential debate october 3rd. governor romney come every economy has good regulation at the same time, regulation can be excessive. the dodd-frank act as a number of provisions that have unintended consequences that are harmful to the economy. it's killing regional and small banks i would repeal and replace it. president obama. the reason we've been in such an economic crisis is prompted by the behavior on wall street putting main street at risk. we stepped in and had the toughest reforms since the 1930's and so the question does anybody out there think we have too much regulation on wall street? senator warner of virginia who was involved in crafting the bill, congress never gets it right when you are looking at a massive reform legislation the first time through. you come back to or three years to do collections legislation. the secretary of the treasury with tim geithner in an editorial march 1st strong defense of the dodd-frank act asking them to remember the financial crisis of 2008 when you read about the hundreds of millions of dollars being spent lobbyists try
of their time and it gives the president to act like a president and what governor romney did not want was a president doing what he is supposed to do and he attacking the office. >> so is it back to the economy as we go to the end of the week? >> well, that's right. i was told in tampa that will be the deciding factor and that's what romnthink will elect him. >> there's some talk. could they move election day because of what happened on the east coast? >> let me clarify this since 1845 the election date is the first tuesday in november. after the harvest and before winter. there has to be a federal law and they would have to come back and change the election date. what can happen is that the counties can extend voting hours and start earlier or close later and make adjustments like that but tuesday november 6 is election day and about a third of the people would have voted before election day any way. >> there's nothing to do with the weather but this could affect the outcome of the election. what swing states have automatic recounts? >> florida and colorado if it's the range of .05 w
now. and he said he has a much different record than mitt romney. let me show you the good portions of his policies. he would double fuel economy for cars by 2025. he would increase solar and wind energy and eliminate $4 billion in annual tax breaks for oil and gas companies. he's tried to do that, and of course the republicans have blocked it. that's the good. let's show you the bad. the copenhagen summit which so many people had great hopes for that pretty much got nothing done. they had a voluntary agreement--wow. he has basically abandoned cap and trade. no question the republicans fought him on that, but there was no second effort at all. he has approved the southern half of the keystone pipeline and i tell you the minute he's elected--not the minute, i like to be accurate--but when he's re-elected he'll approve the northern half as well. and of course he brags how he has done more drilling than george w. bush. which is true. now here is president obama talking about in the second presidential debate about how great he is at oil drilling. >> obama: we have increased oil product
, personal income was up 0.4%. >> tom: hurricane sandy is disrupting markets, the economy, schools, famies, and the election. president obama suspended campaigning to oversee the government's storm response. esvernor mitt romney canceled campaign events in the key m states of virginia and new hampshire. darrenersh tonight looks at the impact with election day one week away. >> reporter: both campaigns say they have stopped fundraising and campaigning in states in sandy's path. governor romney was still looking for votes today in ohio, iowa and wisconsin, but tis campaign says he will stay away from the key swing states of virginia and new hampshire to let emergency workers there focus on the storm. both candidates say this is a time for the nation to come together. >> i am noworried m this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> i would like to ask you who are here today t
romney is more likely to win the election you may think the economy is on a better track. it's a rough measure of economic confidence. some of the actual economic statistics like spending, like, you know, household goods, those are better measures of how people feel about the economy that's out of the political frame. even on the right track/wrong track numbers they have been evening up somewhat. when you see the president around the 50-point mark for job approval, it's that much harder to unseat an incumbent. for four years he's been struggling to avoid 40%. when he's at 50%, it becomes harder for mitt romney in the closing weeks. >> don't you think, though, beyond the numbers, the narrative that is in a sense percolating through this storm, is what kind of country we envision in the future? what kind of country do we aspire towards. if you look at what mitt romney said in the past about fema, and about states and about all these kinds of approaches which are basically reduce it all to the local level and then think of what the president stands for, i think that is going to be actuall
taxes on >>the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >> jennifer: paul ryan was supposed to be campaigning in florida today, but he canceled his appearance because of hurricane sandy. the latest real clear politics poll average has mitt romney beating president obama in florida 49 to 46.6%. in palm beach county the same county that caused people to accidentally vote for pat buchanan. we have reports that election officials there actually screwed up again. i'm joined by chris lahan who was the spokesman for vice president gore's 2000 campaign. thanks for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: so if they are messing up on the ballots, i'm sure it must be so embarrassing. >> yeah. in my view the election was effectively stolen, and now you are 12 years later in the exact same place having questions again. there are a large number of them who are jewish americans. some of them have been survivors of the holocaust, who tried to vote for al gore and then they couldn't have their votes put back to how they original
and the impact on first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself. >> reporter: while the president did cancel all of his campaign events today, mitt romney did have a couple, although he cancelled some tonight. and while in ohio, he tried to walk the line between asking for compassion, but still playing a little campaign politics. here is what he said. >> i know the people of the atlantic coast are counting on ohio and the rest of our states. but i also think the people of the entire nation are counting on ohio. because my guess is, my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president i'll be the next president of the united states. thank you. >> here is what we do know, brian, both mitt romney and barack obama are not doing any campaign events at all tomorrow. and wednesday's schedule is still on the bubble. we'll see if they can get back on the trail. at that point it would be with just six days to go. >> well, chuck, what happens -- last time we had a hurricane, the halloween storm last year, we had power outa
. ed mitt romney was there just on friday. >> when we do those five things, this economy will come roaring back. we will create 12 million new jobs in four years. you'll see rising take-home pay. we will get america also economy growing at 4% a year, more than double this rate. after all of the false promises of recovery, we are finally going to see hope for america's also middle-class. host: , your response? guest: two years ago, there was a platform of -- a chicken in every pot. we have recent experience with this kind of rhetorical flourish. when governor romney throes of those numbers out there and talks about false promises, there is simply -- and do not think it sells here. i do not think people are believing this. the president has put us on a pass. the president has a record of achievement. not a set of overblown promises that do not have the numbers behind them. there still is no explanation for independent economist questions about 85 trillion dollars hole -- $5 trillion whole. no explanation still from romney about where those jobs would come from. there is no explanatio
responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy. and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> meanwhile, governor romney tried to walk the fine line, balancing campaigning still in ohio and iowa, but also compassion from storm victims in ohio. he appealed to put politics aside. >> we've faced these kind of challenges before, and it's interesting to see how americans come together. and this looks like another time we need to come together all across the country, even here in ohio. >> still, romney did not entirely put aside his campaign talking point. >> early voting has begun. get out there and vote, i see a voter right there. get out and vote, i know your vote counts just as much as if cast on election day as if it's cast early. but all the media follows how much early voting is going on and they look at your zip code and where you live and make an estimate of whether you're a republican or democrat and they decide whether we're ahead or falling behind. >> not always that you hear the candidate themselves talk about the literal issue of why early votin
all of the time, romney seems to have momentum. but now npr with a poll out showing romney is winning. >> i believe he picked up a lot of steam since last debate, that people are now making their decisions on the economy. the economy has not improved, although president obama seems have have made good decisions in his response to this storm, just one week of a good presidency does not make up for 4 years of a lousy presidency. gerri: romney got a lot of momentum in last couple weeks, it is possible sandy could quash that, do you think it would have an impact on romney's 3-6rd? >> performance? >> it could. now you have a national disaster, it is hard to be partisan or political, i think it could slow some of the momentum, but it is important to keep in mine that president obama was really on a very negative campaign, he was using this term romnesia that seems so small now, that hurts president obama he was waging a negative personal -- not personal but out on the campaign trail. gerri: the tone is very different now, brad and justin thank you, we appreciate your time, you should both c
a little donation cash. mitt romney appearing in dayton, ohio. so big question today is, what impact will sandy have on the u.s. economy. lots to talk about here because not only is there the damage to consider but the business disruption that it has created throughout the northeast. joining me is jared bernstein former chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to r
esponders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy. >> reporter: president obama cancelled an appearance in florida as he oversees that storm. this is the first time in 40 years that that newspaper has endorsed a republican presidential candidate. for his part, romney today asked voters to consider those in sandy's path. >> a lot of people are enduring very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> reporter: romney replaced his online fund raising efforts with links to the american red cross to help victims of the storm. he's had to cancel campaign events but intends to visit virginia after the storm passes. >>> happening now, more on that epic storm sandy which is paralyzing the lives of millions of people on the east coast. evacuations uations are under way after a back up generator has failed. also a transformer explosion is blamed on sandy. right now officials say more than 5 million people are without power across a half dozen states. a california's 129th rescue wing left moffett field. their mission to rescue stranded storm victims and deliver supplies to isola
-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country. listen to mrs. romney. >> what's happening in greece and look what's happening around the world, we look at what's happening. this is a frightening worlgd. we need a grownup and someone to understand the economy. so i'm glad mitt can be this gronup to all. >> ha, ha, ha. with all the president has done across the world from bin laden? he's not a grown-up? the implications are offensive when you see them in debates acting all cordial to the president. >> it's a little more. ann romney isn't running by president but romney by extension believes the president isn't a grown-up by comparing him to one of his sons during the presidential debate. this is insensitive, given the 2008 was historical election, first african-american president, not just disparaging to the man barack obama but disparaging to the office. shame on her. what david was saying earlier when we were talking about mitt romney wanting to turn back the clock. he sounds like the robert be behrens believes hard work is only by the fat cat on wall street. he's not talk

for the federal government or not? and romney believes there is not. he wants to privatize -- giving it to states or privatize everything. everything from healthcare to the economy. and a time when the government's gotta step in to help, for example, our auto industry. to even disaster relief. and so yeah, if -- if -- let's say north carolina's doing a good job the governor of north carolina is doing a good job, then they get disaster relief. but if you got a governor, i'm saying maybe like in mississippi who doesn't give a crap and doesn't have anything in place the people of mississippi suffer. that's why you need fema. and remember, jimmy carter made fema a cabinet agency. george bush, bill clinton tao too. george w. bush put it in the bowels of the homeland security. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was --
-elected, it will cost twice as much, a disaster to our economy. no way our economy can have a healthy recovery with this tremendous burden, additional burden, placed on it. if romney gets elected, then obamacare will be gone. what is instituted is trying to get the private sector a lot more revitalized in dealing with health care and health insurance. maybe a very significant tax exemption for people to buy their own health insurance so we don't rely on employers to buy health insurance so people can go out and negotiate for our own policies. you'll see tort reform really happen to bring down and take a lot of the cost out of it. you'll see a lot more ability to buy health insurance from different states instead of being stuck in one state where the state gets to define the policy. you'll have 50 states available so the health insurance providers will have to compete with each other. if you set an exemption level of 20,000 for a family, you'll sigh insurance companies trying to price their product a little below that, even a product now that's sold for 23,000, they'll sell for 15,000 or 16,000

tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provides medical coverage to lower income kids, most of them have working families. some of them are african american. some are latino. some are asian or middle eastern background. most of them are white folks. this is not a racial deal. this is an equal opportunity hosing. it is not right. most medicaid money goes to other groups. first, elderly people on medicare who spent all their money and cannot afford to be in a nursing home exce
to support take us right back there again. same as what mitt romney would do, same at what president bush did. that's the congressman's voting record. so we need policies that put people back to work. that's what is going to imimprove our economy. >> he made a statement but i didn't hear anything that reseptember eled -- resembled a plan. i have plan, it's driving down healthcare costs and repealing the well-intentioned president's bill. i agree with the goals but the law will never live up to the goals of driving down costs. i have a replacement, six point replacement plan. energy, driving down costs for hard-working families and looking to the future, and i voted strongly, nine times to increase the efficiency -- >> moderator: i have to cut you off. we're fast approaching the end of the broadcast. the formal questioning is now over and each candidate now has one minute for closing statement. as determined before honda, you'll go first. >> thank you very much. this election presents very clear choices, as you heard tonight. unfortunately, the congressman has repeated over and over again that
of the economy. so my view, if i had any anything to say about it, would be that we ought to, we ought to repeal dodd-frank as governor romney has suggested. we ought to repeal dodd-frank and reprays it with those things that are necessary. and i'm afraid that there is very little in this act that is necessary because the financial crisis also in my view was not caused by a lack of regulation. there was plenty of power in the bank regulators to regulate the economy, regulate the way the banks operated and the act actually doesn't give them much more power except to say you must now do this much more stringently. so from my perspective we ought to, we ought to repeal the act, replace it with those things that seem sensible. there should probably be a commission of some kind that takes over the actions of the consumer financial protection bureau but not the single administrator idea that was developed and insulating that person from other kinds of controls by the president or by congress. all those things could go back into a statute but at this point it's probably better for our economy and the g
. the economy hasn't been so good. mitt romney after the first debate had a huge surge, and a president in a tough economy, getting reelected against a guy who has shape shifted from the primary to the general election it is always going to be a tough battle. i didn't think it would be this close. i thought president obama would still win by four points he still may, but things sure tightened up after the first debate. >> jennifer: libertarian presidential candidate gary johnson is a factor in colorado. who is he helping and who is he hurting? >> the conversionalism would say that gary johnson would help president obama. but gary johnson should be noted could play a bigger role here because he is the two-term governor of a neighboring state. gary johnson has made a big push for the ballot initiative to legalize marijuana. and he has been saying to democrats -- his come pain has been saying to democrats that president obama has intensified the drug war, if you want to make the statement about the drug war, vote for me. and i think he'll take as many votes from presi
